Adapted from River Road Recipes II, the Junior League of Baton Rouge and made my way. This is very tasty with a hint of lemon and the crunch of the topping.

This makes a very good green bean side dish! I enjoyed the subtleness of the lemon (I used lemon juice) and the rest of the seasonings. I probably should have bought the stuffing mix crumbs rather than the cubes, but it still tasted good. I omitted the bacon this time because I didn't have any, but I'm sure that would make it even more delicious. Made for Football Week #1. Congratulations on your win!

Wonderful change from the normal green bean casserole. I cut the recipe in half, as only two of us for dinner tonite. I was lazy and just used some lemon juice instead of the lemon zest. Nice textures with the crispy topping!!! Thanks Nimz for a great recipe.

This was really good, I especially liked the lemon flavor. I halved the recipe and used 2 cups frozen french-cut green beans and I left out the bacon. I accidentaly forgot to halve the lemon zest and it was a bit too strong, but I'll make sure to measure right next time. Thanks for posting.
